Back To School Bento Lunch

Time flies and it's back to school time for Nikolai, he will be starting Grade 4. Where did the time and summer go? We really did have a fantastic vacation from school, so it seems extra jolting that we will need to change our focus from the next adventure to preparing for school. I am glad that Nikolai is quite comfortable with his school, and the staff there, and that he is always appreciative of educational opportunities and eager to learn. I will have to get back to more of a blogging mode... slowly perhaps.

I believe I have mentioned before that I love our Laptop Lunches (new name, Bentology Living) leak proof individual containers. Freeze applesauce in the individual container the night before and it's quick to grab and go in the mornings. It leaves home frozen and thaws by lunch time and works as an additional ice pack.

In this bento lunch:
  • A sandwich made with bread cut to the shape of a small notebook with lines made from nori and notations made from fruit leather. Babybel cheese with the no 4 carved on it. Strawberries in a silicone cup.
  • Organic baby carrots with an apple cupcake pick.
  • Frozen applesauce topped with fruit leather cut into an apple shape. I'll add the lid to the applesauce container before closing the lunch box.
  • A spoon wrapped in cloth napkin.
Check out this great article about 111 Easy to do school lunch ideas that your child would happily eat. We love the ideas.

Here are the supplies that I used to create and pack this lunch.
